Kathleen moved to Kentucky nine months after her birth. She spent her childhood split between the green hills of Kentucky and the dark forests of Pennsylvania.
Her paintings contain narratives involving scenes of magic, illumination and transformation. Innocence and playfulness are used to explore complex themes. Nature, folk tales & poetry inform her visual conception. Constantly seeking to synthesize these elements, her style is an organic mix of surrealism and folk art.
A variety of mediums are used; including acrylic, oil, paper-mache, gouache, mixed -media and collage. She allows just enough ambiguity for the viewer to draw upon their own imagination.
Ms. Lolley currently reside in The Dark Forest where she spends most of her time making crafts, comics and art.
